Get ready for the day your new laminate flooring arrives by understanding the basics of installation. Being prepared and involved in your new laminate flooring installation will help the process go more smoothly and efficiently. Knowing what to expect beforehand will also reduce stress on you, your family, and your home.
The first thing our installers will do is inspect your subfloor for any irregularities. Although no floor is perfectly level, we want to check for any gaps or ridges that could cause problems down the line.
Once we've inspected the subfloor, we'll move on to cleaning the floor. Another critical factor is ensuring the laminate planks or tiles have enough time to adjust to their new surroundings.
After your floor is installed, our laminate flooring installers will remove the spacers and cover the perimeter gap with a trim or wall base. They will then lay the planks or tiles in the desired pattern, carefully measuring and cutting them to fit.
The installers will also add molding to cover the perimeter gap and install any additional trim pieces needed in doorways or where the laminate meets a different type of flooring.
